a liar

undulation told in the bathroom
a liar. house settles between
finished and tall, and tall and
unfinished. the first howlings
of the year. bathroom shudders
a drip tap told me. to fear is
a fiber thing. houses are really
large woodwind instruments we
chose to live in. unfinished shows
us this in gale force, a low calm
pitch, resonating a window. left
open. fear is a fiber thing. as is
the rolling bucket. the slow sliding
then the silence. a little gasp.
undulation told the curtains it
was a liar. closed the doors. made
a little room, of stillness. sat. drank.
washed it’s bleeding teeth.
folded dirty clothes. ate a cake of soap.
undulated. said i was a lair. unfinished
house next door sings like a flute
i wonder if it confuses the bats and their
precious
little
echos.
whether it sounds like their mother.
and they begin to roost in her chest chamber.

a liar

you only visit me in my dreams, where i can’t beat the daylights out of you

why is it that when
sun dips
into dark ponds
i let you back into my bed
with no recall
of the damage that
you caused
i don’t want to die young
i don’t want to die
sunless
in the dark
every night
you slowly remove my vertebrae
smiling
laughing
//i wake up paralyzed//

Pinocchio is disruptive (tries to draw attention to himself, and thinks about ribs, and the pattern: he sees it everywhere (especially those man made islands in dubai: he really relates to them on a personal level))

…\\in the morning\\…

the sausages from the freezer were placed in

themicrowave((not to be microwaved

just to sittoslowlydefrost))

when it came to 5:46pm…

i took them out\finding them still firmly frozen

i pulled out the new pan

…((it’s smaller than the old one))…

they didn’t all fit nicely into two\\spooning rows of meat

the second row was

\\CROO//KED\\

//JARRING//

…i turned the gas flame on…

…and waited…

the clack clock of wooden feet filled the house\\pinocchio stared over my

shoulder…creaking

his hand pointed at the \\break\\ in the second row

and with (whistle) and (wheeze) he spoke

…that’s what my ribs looked like when they got broke…

…you don’t have ribs…,

i answered simply\he wheezed

…i don’t anymore…

pinocchio pressed the tip of his finger\UPON THE BARE SPACE OF FRY PAN

\\\I SHUT MY !EYES! TO THE \SMOKE\\\

…pushing my body into his (ohmygodno)…

…shove off i’m trying to cook here…

((he clacked away and lay on the the floor in the:?))

\\lounge room\\

(WHEEZING) and (WHISTLING) to the bats \trapped\

(…in the cupboards…)
